The bond between original tooth and porcelain veneer is critical as it not only provides the esthetic perfection desired,but also a strong bond which is essential for correct veneer function. Light-sensitive resin is placed between the original tooth and the veneer and then hardened using a special curing light.
Porcelain veneers are a very successful option in many situations where the original tooth has developed poor color, shape, and contours. It is also a good choice for fractured teeth, gaps between teeth, and in some situations where the tooth position is compromised and there are minor bite-related problems. For some people, superficial stains do not respond well to tooth whitening or bleaching. In these situations, a porcelain veneer may be the best option.
Maintenance of a Porcelain Veneer
Maintaining porcelain veneers is actually quite simple:
Treat them as you would your original teeth,with routine brushing and flossing.Using non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste will typically be suggested by your dental professional.
You should also return to your dentist for regular professional maintenance because porcelain veneers should be polished with a specially formulated, non-abrasive paste & because your dentist needs to inspect your dentistry for any sign of potential failure.
